4.184 MAKE ARCHITECTURE

4.184 - ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN WORKSHOP:
[MAKING ARCHITECTURE] THE RESULTS

-

Instructor: Nick Gelpi
-
-
TA: Skylar Tibbits
TA: Varvara Toulkeridou

-

Class Times, Monday, 1-4pm - room 5-216

-

4.184 is an intensive introduction to methods of making explored through a wide range of brief but focused 1-week exercises. We'll engage the real and leave behind representation in the focused context of this class gaining skills for utilizing a range of fabrication machines and technologies from lasercutting, waterjet, 3D printing, welding, formworking-molding, casting, gears, joints and composites.

-

In this workshop we'll constrain ourselves to the territory of the 1:1. Students will represent architectural constructions at full scale and develop a more intimate relationship with technology by engaging the tools and techniques that empower us. We will gain access to the most advanced machines and technologies in the MARS lab at the Center for Bits and Atoms in the context of anything is possible...A "Hands-On" approach.

-

A corresponding "Hands-Off" approach will overlay weekly research exercises into the historical trajectories of thematic case studies in which construction methods and technologies have empowered a different political and instrumental role in the design process. We will catalogue these projects suggesting new categories of classification as strategies for thinking about 'fabrication' in architecture.

-

Over the past 20 years, architects have focused on the technology of representation to create new ideas of what architecture could be. The sub-disciplines of what's drawn and what's built have been compartmentalized and disassociated as the representational tools of architecture have distanced themselves from the techniques of making. At the same time the technologies for “making” in architecture have provided us with new possibilities for reinventing how we translate into reality, the immaterial representations of architecture. Looking back today, much of that research failed to substantially change the way we make buildings by focusing on apriori formal configurations.

-

This class makes the contention that this failure comes from a lack of considerations of the potentials within fabrication knowledge. We look to the future of what building might become, given the expanded palette of personalize-able technologies available to us as architects. Students will participate in curious technological and material investigations, to discover the potentials, known and unknown, for these various technologies.
